Mount Rwenzori Slopes Savings & Credit Co-op (SACCO)

SACCO is located along a major highway, a 30 min drive from nearest city and also in the shadow of the Rwenzori Mountains, a major mountain chain forming the border between Congo and Uganda. It is also a major coffee growing region.

The I4H system was installed February, 2016 aiding 3,750 members

A SACCO is a rural Credit Union. This one serves small coffee farmers. Since 2016, this SACCO has become a major development force in the area. It now boasts Computerized-Banking; quite a juxtaposition to see “in the middle of nowhere”!
